Ipsy Glam Bag Review 2016! πŸ’–

Hi dolls! I missed you! I haven’t talked to you sweeties in a while. I am so sorry I have neglected my blogging, just started a second job and i’m working 40 + hours a week now and I just haven’t had time to come on here and type my fingers off.. πŸ˜₯ I truly apologize girls, and I am going to seriously get back onto my precious beauty blog and bring you guys more stuff to read and tutorials to try, new brandsΒ to fall in love with, all of that great beautiful stuff! πŸ‘„ I really hope you all understand and will keep looking into my blog every once and while to check for new posts! Today, I recieved my Ipsy Feb 2016 glambag. So it was a perfect way to motivate me to sit my butt down and blog.

Let’s get started!


The first two items I want to review with you beauties is the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil & a gorgeous naked cosmetics mica loose pigment shadow in “Sierra Nevada” that I recieved.



The mineral eyeshadow from naked cosmetics has a beautiful shimmer and velvety feel to it. It is super easy to apply and shows up nice and pigmented on the first swipe. It is full of beautiful sparkels & shine that do not show up truly in the picture above.. But this is a very dreamy, earth tone, light catching mocha brown shade. I am in love. Perfect for everyday glam. πŸ’•


As for the SMASHBOX photo finish primer oil, this is pretty much a product based soley for dry skin. I have really healthy normal skin that is dewy- just mildly moist but not dry whatsoever, so unfortunately I can’t use this nice product. I can tell by the crazy slick & typical oily consistency that it wont sit well with my skin, so I am not even gonna risk it. Other women who have dry skin in need of some moisture; this product claims to reduce the appearance of fine lines caused by dryness, increase moisture in 4 weeks, and creates an ideal canvas for applying makeup as well. So this just might work perfectly for you! 😁

Next up, I was sent a mini Vintage by Jessica Liebeskind lipgloss in the shade “Pink Sequin,” and a pink Luxie flat definer shadow brush.


The gloss:Β 

  • Β Smells cheap
  • Tastes strange
  • Gritty texture

Other than these unwanted traits, it’s a gorgeous pretty light pink champagne color. It’s a shame I wont be using it becuase of it’s noticable cheap quality and scent.

The brush:

  • Gorgeous pink handle
  • Very precise flat tip
  • No loose hairs at all

This seems to be a really great quality brush, always love recieving new ones to play with! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ’• Thanks Ipsy!


The last product I was sent is this Perfectly Posh- Best Face Forever Pepermint, Grapefruit and Aloe Vera Exfoliating Face Mask. This mask seriously smells minty and incredibly refreshing, it has large exfoliating sugar grains that definitely gets the job done when it comes to shaving off all those lame dead skin cells revealing new, soft and vibrantly healthy appearing skin. I like the combonation of the pepermint and aloe vera, it makes for a very soothing combination and spa-like experience! πŸ’†πŸ» I am giving this face wash product a chance, even though these normally turn me off.

Thanks for reading babes, missed you all so much! 😘 Leave me some comments and thoughts. I really hope to hear from some of you. Untill next time ladies! πŸ’‹

Quick Ipsy December Glambag Review!

Hello again all! ❀ I received my lovely little pink bag in the mail today, so you know what that means… Review time! πŸ˜€

The little card is so adorableΒ it has all the famous youtubers on it but in little cutesy drawings! I really don’t read these anymore though, because they always mislead me. So let’s just get right into it!

FullSizeRender (36)

First off we have this sweet little teeny tiny Fomula X Nail Polish, in a gorgeous shimmery champagne golden shade called “Revved Up”. I’ve heard great things about Fomula X and i’m excited to try it because i do not own any colors byΒ this brand. I especially like this color for the upcoming Holiday ❀ Did any of you get a different shade?

FullSizeRender (27)

The next few items i’ll cover now. Starting off with the Anti Aging Lip & Hand Polish by Jersey Shore Spa in the scent “Vanilla Bean.”

Here i squeezed a little out for you to see the texture & consistency. It clearly has a very abrasive exfoliating quality to it, with large sugar crystals and also nice hydrating characteristics because of the jojoba oil you can see draining off. I have been in dire need of a great lip polish in these colder months here in AZ. So i was VERY excited to see this, and since i plan on only using this on my lips the deluxe sample size will last me FOREVER! I also love the smell, it’s more of a natural Vanilla Bean scent than the typical artificial vanilla cake smell. Thank you Ipsy! ❀ You saved my lips!

Next up we have the two lip products i was sent!

Left: Pacifica Power of Love Vegan Lipstick in ‘Nudie Red’

Right: Model Co Illusion Lip Liner Pencil in a Mauvey/Brown Shade

First off i would like to say if you want to see a lip swatch of these two products, check out my last post because i used them together to create a beautiful natural lip! I absolutely LOVE the texture of both of these, they glide on your lip and are super creamy and opaque. I usually would prefer if Ipsy sent me brighter colors, but these are the perfect nude duo, and i am so happy these were sent to me. Great lip products! ❀ These are both FULL SIZE also!

And lastly, we have the dreaded hair care sample:

If you read my Ipsy reviews you know that i am never too happy when i get a heavy glambag only to crack it open and find a big ole’ tube of hair product or hand lotion 😦 I like coconut but i don’t need these types of samples as i already have a pretty religious hair ceremony. LOL. Passing this item off to a friend.

And that’s all for my Ipsy Glambag! I really hope you all enjoyed this review, let me know what you got in YOUR bag down below! ❀ Love you all! πŸ™‚ Remember to follow my instagram and youtube channel if you haven’t already!
